Change. . .and giveaway . . .! ! !


Good Morning World... the sun is shining here...yippeee!!!!!!
It's a bit nippy out but that's ok...we have sunshine - oh I've missed you.
Yesterday I decided to give my blog a makeover (well my house has had a makeover, I've had a makeover in that I had all my hair cut off, have gone shortish - one loveable 7year old boy at school told me I looked soooo much better and it was about time and his friend standing next to him agreed. Out of the mouths of babes. I had to laugh).  
Vitton, the teeniest tinyest handbag dog wanted in on the new look blog and he brought his best mate along Pockets.


Vitton the teeniest tinyest handbag dog...
and his mate Pockets!
So I'm now the proud owner of two gorgeous teeniest tinyest handbag dogs...
And to celebrate I'm having a giveaway... 
All you have to do is Leave me a comment and Follow Me here on Blogger and share me and like me on Facebook.  I will put your name in the hat and the lucky winner will receive a set of my Christmas Cards
The Winner will be announced next Wednaday 14th November 2012





Look foreward to hearing from you all... Catherine x
Am sharing with PaintPartyFriday  see you there...

The new make over looks beautiful and so different!!! I like it very much. And I also like the cute girlies, angles, elves, fairies and the technique and contrast on the brown paper!
The doggies match very well with the new look of the lady on the top as well as also of your blog :)

How wonderful! Your makeover is lovely and I am so in love with Vitton and Pockets!! I'd love to see you with your new short hair - I'm currently growing out my pixie crop (for the 3rd time in my life - so the cycle begins again!) I definitely want to be included in the give away - it would be wonderful to give my own Christmas cards away on my blog and win some of your gorgeous ones!!

OH I'd love to have a set of your Christmas cards! Although it WOULD be hard to send or give them out to people!

I worked with children for 33 years & they say the "darndest things!" I loved working with children & hope to do it again soon.
Thanks for the chance,
Grandma Nancy Sapp

Tammie Lee said...

hello Catherine X,
each piece is so charming! congratulations on all your new things, from sun to hair to dogs to looks, sounds wonderfully fun.

I was also looking at your last post about tea... for me if i want black it is usually Earl Gray i reach for, if it is herbal I love Tulsi with roses!

Lovely Sunday to you.

My son said "It's Hairy McClary from Donaldson's Dairy" - but don't worry, he was talking about the dog, not your hair!

I had my hair cut short(ish) this week too. You're the 4th person I know (including me) to go for the hair chop this week!!

Debbie said...

Cute painting this week! I'm a follower, but i don't have a face book page...i hope that doesn't count me out, as I would love to win your adorable cards!

Virtual Boy said...

LOL-- that is so funny about the 7 year old boy! I have a 6 year old nephew and could definitely hear him saying that, too. you gotta love them!

and speaking of love-- those little doggies are adorable-- mirror images in black and white.

your holiday cards are wonderful, too. i particularly like the white on the bottom one-- it gives it an airy feel.
